SYNOPSIS

A plus-sized dance student stops at nothing to nab the lead role in her academy’s prestigious production, even at the cost of her health. Noma takes health and disciplinary risks to qualify for the role of Cinderella in her academy’s annual dance production for final years. As a scholarship student, she feels the need to prove herself to her peers, the establishment and her family. Other obstacles she faces include self-doubt and her very own close friend and excellent dancer, Gina. In a twist of events, Noma’s tenacity leads her to an unconventional win.
